Introduction

A new client, Vision Homes, commissioned TPS to help fulfil a planning condition for their residential-led development in Southwark

The site required a travel plan to comply with planning conditions, and TPS worked with Vision Homes to produce a plan that was in context for the scale of development, and effective and practical to implement.

Sustainable Access Analysis

Our approved travel plan reviewed the national and local policy context for the need and scope of residential travel planning, before moving on to present the accessibility of the site. This exercise demonstrated that this location benefitted from excellent active travel links, and also that there were a range of public transport options within 1500m of the development. The PTAL (Transport for London’s measure of access to public transport facilities) score was analysed, and the results showed that the site had a very good level of accessibility to public transport.

It was also clear that the site had good links to amenities and facilities including schools, healthcare, retail and leisure. Within 15 minutes travel time of the site there were numerous services, meaning that future residents of the site would be excellently positioned to use sustainable travel modes for most journey requirements.

Measures and Monitoring

The TPS Travel Plan looked at the best ways to encourage sustainable travel for residents and employees at the site, focussing upon promotion and marketing as the key tools. In a location such as this where sustainable travel is easily accessible, ensuring that the correct and up to date information is available will ensure that opportunities for sustainable travel are maximised.

TPS also produced a monitoring and reporting mechanism to study the travel patterns of residents and employees to ensure that the development is making the most of the location and opportunities in the surrounding area. These results will need to be filtered back to the local authority as the travel plan progresses.
